? >> they're really powerless. the city of orlando is not in a position legally to do anything and even the state of florida's own laws would say that they're not, there is no price-gouging that occurs because the state law is so weak, price-gouging can only occur if the governor declare as state of emergency. so given the absence of that there is no price gouging. there is nothing that can be prosecuted. the other problem with the florida law, even when there is a state of emergency, the law doesn't define, it doesn't quantify what price-gouging is or isn't. it just says when the price of a commodity grossly exceeds the average price for the 30-days prior to when the declaration of an emergency is made. it is too vague. it is pointless. melissa: this goes on all over the place, right? this is an extreme example which is why we brought it up. we're talking about it to everyone because this happens in other places right? where are you likely to see something like this going on? >> well you're probably most likely to see this in vacation destinations but this particular retailer is by far

. lori: why does ihg want to sell the property? it is new york city and a flagship. >> it is a flagship, goes back to our strategy when we became a stand-alone company in 2002 we took a position we wanted to go asset light strategy. that asset light meant selling down assets. we're going about that and returning to shareholders those proceeds. in fact we returned over a billion dollars this year. on the back of $9 billion in total we returned to shareholders. lori: i understand ihg is hiring 0,000 workers in the americas alone? >> travel is economic development which is good news about the industry. and part of that is we're doing our best to do our fair share, create careers, create jobs, educate a work foss. part of that is creation of jobs. we have the opportunity to continue to see a very strong pipeline and with that comes jobs. lori: what is the number one thing as we close out here, kirk, that your customers look for in their hotel rooms? what is the most important thing to offer? >> i think the most important thing to offer is no surprise. you know, it is all about the promise w

it at a million rather than going down to 200. gerri: because he is in new york city were a lot of people make 250,000. >> you are not rich. you don't feel rich. and the irony is, you listen to joe biden and barack obama talk about it, and it sounds like they're only taxing millionaires and billionaires because their the only people they ever invoke, but what bill was talking about is more a zesty debate within the right about the sort of things without the debate being shut down automatically at. now, if he's talking about raising rates on millionaires, i think that really is bad for the tax system. as we were discussing earlier, the parameters of the deal, you will probably get more revenues and will come from the top. gerri: revenues don't come from taxing the wealthy. you don't get enough revenue to make a difference to the deficit or debt. i want to talk to you about patty murray in the senate he said, was distraught over the fiscal cliff. >> we can to accept an unfair deal that tells all of this on the middle-class and tells them they have to support it. we have to make sure that the wealthi
it comes to managing your money. gerri: today was the first day of gasoline rationing in new york city and long island all because of hurricane sandy. gas rationing. drivers can only fill up every other day were put into place to stop the panic buying and it is borderline anarchy that was going on. long lines that took effect. you see a lot of calves in the line as well. governor andrew cuomo says it could top $50 billion and it would make it that second costliest storm behind hurricane katrina seven years ago. president obama is scheduled to visit the new york area next thursday to see the recovery operation firsthand. the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again. and expecting different results. so how does this apply to obama's next four years in office? the green companies backed by your taxpayer dollars? they just grow and grow. many of them are hemorrhaging cash by the day. others have gone bankrupt altogether. our next guest is you can expect nothing but the same under this administration. a seor fellow joins us now. robert, always a pleasure t

. this guy had been with new york city emergency management services for two decades, making 153 rand per year. i want to draw attention to these signs that had been put up . these yellow signs simply mean that there is some sort of damage. it is to be fixed. some sort of injury limitation that would be specified. if there is a red sticker on the door, that means you cannot coincide. you cannot even get into your own home, which has been a hard thing for some people because they feel like they have nowhere to go. i am joined by loretta. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you say you are concerned about your grandchildren. >> i have to. i have natural flooding in front of my house. worried about years ago with the insects. now i have to worry about the sewage cannot about them playing inside. i always catch the water because we are low. connell: adelle want the kids to be playing out there today. that is another thing. people were coming in to take pictures. all sorts of then -- nastiness, twisted metal. you cannot even see it because of the snow. connell: a tough situation for a lot
points. >>> for the first time since the 1970s new york city begins rationing gasoline today. it is using odd even system for the license plate just like new jersey. the gas crisis caused by hurricane closed hundreds of gas stations, caused long lines waiting to fill up. a rather small drop in gas prices overnight. the national average for a gallon of regular, 3.45. diesel still right there at $4.01 a gallon. tell you what we have got coming up. no stopping obamacare. four more years of president obama means states have eight days to decide how to implement the new law. new at 10:00, dr. marc siegel tells us exactly what that means for you and your health because obamacare is definitely coming. back to sandra. what's with jcpenney. down again? >> apparently the turnaround plan is not working for ron johnson at jcpenney. this is one of the biggest losers. top loser in the s&p 500 down more than 7% stu, in today's session. same-store sales at the department store chain in the third quarter, down 26%. that was a much bigger drop than analysts had been expecting. revenues for the quarter also
priced. city and bank of america are speculative deals below but nobody wants to go there. the key thing is they're going to barely be doing double-digit return on equity. when you factor that into the evaluation estimate, that is about right. melissa: anything change your mind? >> if we got a huge amount of investment banking revenue for morgan stanley, city, if housing suddenly came back, one reason the sell-off occurred is the street understands barack obama and the current cats in washington won't do anything about residential housing and what they're doing a negative. dodd-frank ripped the guts out of the nonbank mortgage origination sector. all we have left other banks. melissa: don't realize they are discouraging lending. >> in six months the congress is going to hear such screens of unhappiness from realtors and everybody else in the housing industry in that they have to revisit these issues and forget about partisan at that point. even liz warren may have to reconsider -- [talking over each other] >> we will have some bar growth and you can expect multiples for large cap financi

around parts of staten island, as we flew over parts of, other parts of the city and the region that had been impacted there's still a lot of cleanup to do. people still need emergency help. they still need heat. they still need power. they still need food. they still need shelter. kids are still trying to figure out where they're going to go to school. so there's a lot of short-term immediate stuff that has to be dealt with and going to make sure we stay here as long as people need that immediate help. that's fema's primary task. we'll be coordinating closely with state and local governments to make sure folks are getting the short-term help but what we also argued there will be some long-term building that is required. you look at this block and you know that this is a community that is deeply rooted. most of the folks that i met here have been here 20, 30, 50 years. they don't want to see their community uprooted but there's got to be a plan for rebuilding. and that plan is going to have to be coordinated and they are going to need resources. so what i have committed to doing is work
